Decided on Cabo, now what?

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!,

It's exciting to finally find a forum that has everything I need. So, my fiance and I have finally decided for sure that we want to get married in Cabo with about ~30 guests January 2014. What is the best way to choose the resort? We've booked a quick trip with my mother for May this year and we would like to visit a few resorts to see what's available. Any recommendations on resorts? Does anyone know if we are able to talk to someone at the resorts in person? Thanks in advance for any help!

Congrats! I used trip advisor to search cabo hotels... There were about 30 and you can narrow down pretty quick with filters like price or all inclusive (or non AI). I'm getting married at the RIU Palace and there are a lot of Dreams brides on the forum as well. The hotels will meet with you in person if you get in touch with them to set it up. Good luck!

We found a wedding planner in Cabo and she helped us find a resort.  At first we were going to have our wedding at the resort but we decided to go with another venue instead.  We visited in October of last year and our wedding is June 8th, 2013.  Let me know if you need any help :)

How was your visit before the wedding? What made you decide to change your venue from a resort? Did you have a large wedding or small? We're planning on about 30-35 guests. Thanks!!

I began researching the various hotels and contacting them for pricing. I ultimately chose Casa Dorada because we wanted to be walking distance to town and we're also hosting an event at Nikki Beach next door. Jazmin has been really helpful.

 

Good luck and Congratulations!

Newly engaged and we have decided on Cabo in March 2014. Now to choose a resort, anyone have up to date pricing or info on any resorts you would recommend?

If you contact the resort you're interested in, they should provide you with their current package prices. I would recommend comparing each package, this is how I narrowed down my choice.

    • I recently was married at Las Caletas and had Tom Moks for our wedding photographer. I stumbled upon his work on Instagram and was captivated by the colors, authenticity, and ease of his photos. Each couple looked stunning and the moments they shared looked so passionate and pure. After reaching out to Tom, via email from his website, he responded a couple days later and we discussed his availability for our wedding date. I had to have him! Before I pulled the trigger and finalized down payments though, I decided to research some more and check out his reviews just to be safe. I came to this review thread and was so disappointed when I read about what brides were saying about their experiences.  I had it set it my mind that Tom would be our photographer and felt confused and scared to move forward with him. I had said from the beginning of the wedding planning (and heard from many previous brides) that photography is perhaps the most important money you will spend during your wedding planning and to not be frugal. Cautiously and anxiously, I decided to give a shot, fingers-crossed, and go with Tom. What I can tell anyone that stumbles across this page, like I did a few months ago, was that Tom was without a doubt the most incredible, talented, kind-hearted, genuine, hardworking, genius creator and capturer I’ve ever met or witnessed! From start to finish, Tom was honest, helpful, and easy going!  We decided to go with the package that gave us the opportunity to do a “Couples Shoot” before the actual wedding day (we decided to do this instead of traditional engagement pictures back home in Chicago as we loved the historic beauty and colors of downtown Puerto Vallarta.) Before the shoot, Tom and I had several phone conversations, in which we discussed all the logistics and details to the shoot. He answered my questions, gave me honest and real responses, and I told him we’d follow his lead. We chose to trust him and not overthink or plan out what we wanted. We trusted him to guide us and deliver amazing photo. And he did JUST THAT. I typically HATE taking pictures and feel so uncomfortable the second the lens is pointed in my direction. But Tom made this experience not only doable, but enjoyable! He made me feel beautiful, he made me feel comfortable, he made me feel amazing!   If you’re looking for someone who won’t be honest and candid with you, if you’re not able to take constructive feedback, if you’re not willing to laugh at yourself and your awkwardness, if you’re not willing to trust his process and let go of the control, Tom Moks may not be the photographer for you.  If you’re looking for photos back the next day or even next couple weeks, Tom may not be the photographer for you. Just know, he is an artist who is capturing moments that will last a lifetime. There should be no rush for that. I was MORE than happy waiting a couple of months for my photographs because they were the most stunning and incredible photos I’ve ever seen of myself and my husband. It was worth the wait.  I cannot thank Tom Moks enough for the work he did for my husband and I. He was present every step of the way and went above and beyond to capture each moment. I genuinely will miss him and hope you all get to experience the same feeling we did with Tom as your photographer!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
